The 12th (Suffolk Regiment) at the Battle of Minden. 1st August 1759 by Brian Palmer.
During the Seven Years War (1756 - 63) a large French army of 52,000 men commanded by Marshal Contades moved from the Rhine to take Minden and threaten the Electorate of Hanover, one of Britains allies in the war. Ferdinand of Brunswick commanding an allied army consisting of British, Brunswick, Hanoverians and Hessen - Cassell troops numbering 42,000 stood in their way. The battle began at first light with the allies forming up in 8 columns preparing to advance. Due to a misunderstanding of orders two brigades, which included the 12th, went into the attack before the rest of the line had properly formed. With drums beating and colors flying they launched a frontal attack on French cavalry, and against all odds held firm and threw them back in confusion. By this time the rest of the infantry had arrived in support and the French army was routed. Minden is remarkable for this unique attack by infantry in line against a mass of cavalry.
